Hopefully someone here has the answer here.

When I have my hand help Uniden PC100a connected to my Gateway Solo laptop and I attempt to open an HTML file with the laptop the laptop lockes up.

Gateway has no idea whats going on or how to fix it. And I can't find any help form this one on the Microsoft site.

TIA

Hi,
I recommend that you check the number of serial devices (including modems) that are on your machine. Other users have reported conflicts between serial ports on Gateway laptops.

Chris,

This may be a stupid question but is a PCMCIA modem a serial device?

Sorry for the ignorance. Thanks for your help

Hi,
Yes a PC Card (PCMCIA) modem does map to a serial port. It can cause conflicts.
